The really important thing I've learned by attending music theatre conferences and workshops is that there's no formula, you have to do it to learn how ... you need to take the risk. It's about being creative, and, I think, understanding that the most important element is the audience, which can and must be moved by what goes on in the show. The material I like is stories about people. In Chnrus line, for example, you live the dream of being on stage through the eighteen characters. Another show I love isA Class Act, which is about F.clward Kleban, the lyricist for A Chnrus line, the only successful show he ever did. { saw it in New York and want to do it in Toronto. 2) Donna Bennett: Co-artistic director (with Brian Finley), Westben Arts Festival Theatre, Compbellford, Ontario, June 29 - July 28. WN: What is the attraction of old European music in that quintessentially rural North American structure, the timber frame barn? DB: It is really about good music in unpretentious surroundings. We open the doors on all sides of the barn except the stage and let the world in. In the usual urban concert venues they are shutting the world out. Last sum- . mer after a concert of Mozart's music a woman came up to me and said, 'Tm sure the birds are singing louder!" · Music is very approachable here, especially for kids, it's really good for 'tlxm. The musicians love iHoo. They are billeted with local people and have a fantastic tiine. They are treated like royalty ... and the parties! It's a little different from staying in a hotel, going in front of the white lights and leaving town. 3) Annalee Patipatanakoon: Violinist, the Gryphon Trio: Banff Festival of the 'Arts, Musique de chambre a . Ste. -Petronille, Festival de la Baie des Oialeurs, WestbenFestival, Ef.oraFestival, Festival of the Sound, Ottawa O!amber Music Festival, Mostly MIYZf/lt Festival, New York, Cooperstown Chamber Music Festival. What I like about performing in ire summer festivals is tref:W)rtunitytomeet your audience, toexperien:e ire atmosphere of the place and also the sense of community. Audierx:e aIXl performers are in a different head space, rnore relaxed aIXl more receptive. When we are at these festivals we are asked to do different things, to perform repertoire we don't usually do aIXl work with people we don't usually work with. I always come away from them with new ideas aIXl a feeling of having been refreshed. Usually, too, there's mt as much time tO rehearse before performing as you would like aIXl that lenls a different kiOO of excitement aIXl acertain spontaneity! They're all a bit different. In P'ally Sounl there are open rehearsals aIXl lectures, while Ottawa is unique, more like more like the Kuhno Chamber Music· Festival in Finlaro than ire other Canadian festivals.
